PORTRAIT PAINTING : Weekend @ Art Courses Wales ( Full /Waiting list )


Our Portrait Painting Course is different from most as it has the benefit of two sitters in the studio at the same time. This means one model  is shared between 4 people. The advantage  is being able to study the subject  from  5 feet away.  Therefore this is an exceptional opportunity. In most portrait classes you will find yourself  between 15ft or 20ft from the model.  The closer you are the better you can judge proportions, form and detail .

The course suits beginners as well as the more experienced. It is a real chance to concentrate on the nuts and bolts of drawing and/or  painting and how you construct and make a portrait. You also  have a choice of two models which you can  work from either or both during the 3 days.

Materials. We have large sheets of paper, drawing materials and various paints and canvases in stock. You can use oil and gouache paints for £6 a day. Otherwise bring materials of your choice. The studio is fully equipped with  8 studio easels, work stations and drawing boards.

Booking& Fees.  This course is  more expensive than a life class  due to  having an extra model. However,  an “early bird” booking  is £191 for  those booking for the full three days. There are a few places set aside for those wanting to attend for one or two days.

Refreshments. Lunch and refreshments are included. Please let us know if you have any special requirements.
